Gotcha! I was wondering if English wasn't your first language. A grammar Nazi in my opinion is someone who gets bent out of shape because someone doesn't put a comma in the right place, or uses words like they're/their/there in the wrong tense.Went to public school in a state with an underfunded public education system in the south. You can not produce much if the school underfunded.
Yeah, I was thinking the same thing as this forum doesn't get too many discussions about CC in general. I had a second part to this topic after getting everyone's initial thoughts about how cavalier Cuba is in the handling of their tobacco.So glad that this wasn’t my thread. A Good initial post.
I'm in the same boat. I've only had stuff from the early 00's at the oldest.I got seriously into cigars a little over 2.5 years ago, NC only. Then 2 years ago I purchased my first CC after dabbling, thanks to some awesome members here, and I have never looked back. Now when I smoke some of the left over NC stock I purchased from before, I can tell a big difference. What resonates with my palate is definitely CC. I no longer buy NC's. Not to say I dislike all NC, I have so much stock now I have no reason to buy more NC. I have never tried anything very old and would be afraid to at this point. If I found out I loved them, I'd be screwed financially.
I imagine you meant baking spices in CC and that's an interesting way to describe the differences. I've never heard that before.I much prefer the baking spice flavors of the NC to the cooking spice flavors of the NC.
You're correct, I was deep into the rum I was drinking with that Encantos last night.I imagine you meant baking spices in CC and that's an interesting way to describe the differences. I've never heard that before.
I'm right there along with @Scap and @George Scott in terms of my ratio of NC to CC lately. I've got a healthy stock of the old reliables, Fuente Opus/Anejo and Padron, but I've touched them maybe five times this year. I can definitely say that once I lit up that first RASS from @Backslide a few years back I knew which direction my future dollars were headed. I figure it may be a good thing I wasn't into cigars pre-97. There is no missing what I've never had in regards to the seed change .
OMG, I've bit my tongue long enough. Would you just shut the fuck up!?I actually think it is funny that people seem to question the wisdom of the Cuban Govermennt not investing more in their Cigar industry. We American's sometimes IMHO need to keep out noses, influence, military out of were it does not belong. We have enough of our own problem at home to fix.
Recently Warren Buffet who is a smart guy, know how to make money, bought a group of automotive dealerships. The experts at the L.A. Times who write Business News for the Times question Buffet wisdom in a story about Buffet's decision to buy the car dealerships, because of many current trends in the auto buying industry. Why did Buffet do it, what does Buffet know?
I wonder if the Times expert writers have any actually business experience, or just a business degree, and were that by a PHd a lot of degrees, but real no business experience.
As I understand it the Cuban cigar industry is owned by the Goverment of Cuba. Just maybe they are like the local small business man who someone keep tell to franchise, but he isw happy the way thing are with his little business the way is is running.
Just my thoughts on the subject. Cuban Cigars are like the very first Datsun "240 Z" cars, people are standing in line to buy them.
